Good thing it wasn't a three-hour tour... or I'd have to call you Skipper.. or gilligan.

We then sailed within 10 degrees of apparent (damndest thing I seen) at 2 knots in 15 TWS for about 5 minutes waiting for a tanker to clear off. Then I fell off, tightened up and charged across the tanker's wake at 7 knots or so. It made the younguns squeal a bit. After we got back across and fell off sorta downwind, the wind dropped and the rain came for about a half hour. We got back to the bay, found a bit of breeze and finished up our 4.5 hour tour. Another group of newbies hooked on sailing and enough of a good sail to get me through the week. Again, we were the only sailboat out there.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
